8 Elegant Living Room Color Scheme Ideas

Most of us are very particular about the decor of our living room because, firstly, it is the room in which we spend most of our time in and secondly, it is the first room that is thrown open to inspection when a guest steps in. Hence, we need to put in careful thought when deciding upon color combinations for the living room. However, one does not always have to resort to tried and tested combinations to get appealing results. Some fresh combinations can look great too. Here are 8 such color combinations and decor ideas you can try out to glam up your interiors:


This vibrant color is perfect for brightening up your interiors. You can either paint all your walls in this shade or if that seems like a little too much yellow in a single room, accent a single wall with this color. Opt for light-colored furniture to add a touch of subtlety.

This shade needn’t be reserved for the bedroom as it’s a great shade to color your living room with too. A rich, intense but mellow shade, it creates a warm, cosy ambiance indoors. Compliment your walls with beige, camel or taupe furniture.

A striking, vibrant shade, it might be a little overwhelming to paint all your walls in this shade. So, select one wall you wish to highlight and paint it in the eye-catching shade. Paint the rest of the walls in muted hues. A wooden flooring will add a warm atmosphere to the room.
